The year 2018 may not have been a great one for Aamir Khan with Thugs of Hindostan not meeting critics’ and viewers’ expectations, however, there’s absolutely nothing that holds this talented actor back. The superstar recently took to social media to share some exciting news about his next film being the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks' Forrest Gump. The film, which has been given the title name, Lal Singh Chaddha, narrates the story of dim witted sardaar who witnesses some of the most monumental events in the history of India. Not only this, but the film will also mark the a reunion for Aamir and his 3 Idiots co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan.
"Kareena is the perfect choice for the film. They have locked both the actors' dates from October this year. They plan to shoot three schedules, back to back and Aamir will have different looks for each era. The film begins in the 70s and ends in present time. From the Emergency and Kargil War to Pulwama and Uri and the changing government, the film will showcase some of the biggest highlights in the last five decades of the nation's socio-political history,” a source close to the film’s development recently revealed.
For the film, its director, Advait Chandan, together with Aamir Khan have researched and discussed several looks. "There will be four to five different looks for each part of the time frame. Both the characters age with time and Aamir and Advait has been looking at the clothes, the culture and the looks that were prevalent for every era and redesigning it for a sardaar. They are going to keep a few days off right now to complete the look test before they roll out with the first schedule,” the source confirmed.
While Aamir Khan prepares for Lal Singh Chaddha, Kareena Kapoor has been spending some quality time with her family in London. The starlet also recently made her television debut with Dance India Dance and has been dividing her time between Londond and Mumbai to ensure a healthy work life balance.
